an alert asking for more information. some are in south america, one in switzerland. three or four may be linked to al qaeda. one in libya where a thousand prisoners are still on the run. one in pakistan where we have learned from a leaked list that two significant pakistan taliban leaders were freed from that. a man called al-balar. he's on the run. there's a wanted poster for him. concerns as to the nature and seniority of people released in these jailbreaks. >> thank you. i want to bring in our cnn law enforcement analyst. nick just mentioned a powerful person. a member of al qaeda who is on the loose. how much of this is based on the fact there are dangerous guys out there who might be in a position of power. >> of course they're in a position of power. it's hard to say. i don't think they know for sure whether the prison breaks are related to the threats going on now or the leaders that were released in those breaks were involved in the planning of the current threats that are out there. >> tom, we mentioned these intercepted messages. what do you think is behind. what do you thin
to friday. back to "america's newsroom." >> i'm browne here for martha maccallum. they said it is out of caution and not related to the original threat. bill: we expect the president to address some specific concerns in a news conference from the white house. here is press secretary jay carney late yesterday on that. >> when it comes to protecting americans serving in our embassies and facilities around the world, it is very important to take the necessary precautions when there is this kind of credible threat information. bill: greg palkot leads our coverage. he's working the story out of london today. what is the latest out of pakistan, greg. >> reporter: that's right, bill. we were talking just a short while ago with officials at the u.s. embassy in islamabad, pakistan. they had confirm ad drawdown of what they called non-emergency personnel from the u.s. consulate in lahore. that is about 180 miles southeast of islamabad. that personnel is in fact being brought up to islamabad in that capital area. they also confirmed to us that it was all due to a specific threat against that ins
to avoid what could be extended to worldwide closures even if america's 284 diplomatic posts starting as early as sunday. >> let's turn to michael lighter. the former director of national counterterrorism center. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> as andrea just mentioned this is exceedingly rare for the state department to take such a dramatic step. what's your gut? >> my gut is that they clearly have something that's very credible, either human intelligence or signal intelligence, intercepted communications. and although they don't know exactly where it's credible or not they got to take very broad precautions and as andrea noted in light of the benghazi the state department will be extra careful and the intelligence community is very worried about any leaks that could endanger the course and keep them from getting additional information to protect the embassies. >> let me ask you to elaborate more on that. as you well know as somebody who was at the highest levels of the intelligence community threats come in all the time. there's always chatter. surely there's something over
almighty god commands and america's ban on cruel and unusual punishment prevents the flogging of a fornicator or receiving senior severerring the hand of thief. clearly it pears that hassan, court-martial, is making hiking case to military justice but to allah. trace? >> i guess you can also make the case he is also appealing to a broader audience here. >> an expert in islamist history and the koran reviewed the documents and believe hassan has a larger motive. >> i think it's clearly an after-the-fact issue where he now is trying to put the personal jihad he was involved in -- trying to put it into a larger religious and geopolitical context, and justify what he is doing. perhaps in a sense to himself and also i think in large measure to the folks in the islamic world. >> that has long been an argument against trying jihadists in civilian court, out of fear it would give terrorists a soap box for recruisement -- recruitment. the judge in the court-martial did not impose a gag order, hence we're seeing these documents that hassan himself has written. trace? >> doug, thank you.
. >> translator: i call on every muslim on every spot on earth to stop the crimes of america and its allies against the muslims in palestine, iraq, afghanistan, yemen, mali, and everywhere. >> emily schmidt joining us from washington. emily, clearly the obama administration feels that something is up here, but specifically do we know what led them to pull the trigger on closing these embassies? >> we have a couple of different ways to pull back the curtain for you. first of all, with what we've been reporting, officials have been tracking this knowledge they said for weeks, but in the past few days they say the chatter was simply increasing enough to believe that al qaeda in the arabian peninsula in yemen could be in the final stages of planning an unspecified attack. this morning the white house tells cnn though it's not going to comment on intelligence in this case, particularly as it relates to a "new york times" report that says some of this intelligence came from intercepted electronic communications between senior al qaeda operatives. this article notes that's one of the main function
